Swan's answer to the question What is this dog really biting in The Thing?

Swan took the initiative to contact John Carpenter (director) and Stuart Cohen(producer) to get an answer to this question. This answer deserved more attention and recognition.


steelerfan's answer to Why does no one notice the Joker's presence as a policeman during the mayor's speech?

That question was closed on vague grounds and after reopening it got quite appreciable answer from steelerfan which seems worth giving bounty too.


I'd nominate KutulMike's answer to the question How do actors make eye contact with CGI characters?.

It is great answer and deserves an additional reward.


A J's answer to the question What's the meaning of abbreviations in credits? (ASC, PGA, …).

This answer provides most of the abbreviations used by people involved in movie making. It lists all popular ones in one answer, and gives more details other than just their meaning.


Paulie_D's answer to the question How did Mongo punch the horse?

This answer was well researched and provided additional insight into the particular film technique that was asked about.


Swan's answer to Mellish getting emotional over Hitler Youth knife

I think the level of detail in this answer would match the standards of History SE. It's much better than the accepted one and should have received far more appreciation.


dbugger's answer on Is Toy Story inspired by The Velveteen Rabbit?

Well researched answer which didn't got much appreciation that it deserve.

cde's answer on my own question What was Bruce Wayne's obsession with unusual looking statues?

This is in an example of a case where non top voted answer surpass in quality to the top voted answer and might need more appreciation.
